I'm looking to automate my local dev environment without using TDS and want to make use of sitecore SIM , powershell or msbuild to do all my stuff.
One time Setup Idea is to create one bat file which will take care following:-
1. Install sitecore instance using sitecore SIM 2. Install Sitecore packages (CMS items/templates etc) 3. Application level configurations and setting.
Incremental step would be to publish solution on top of it...as part of ongoing development. I want to keep less dependency on tds or other tool. Want to keep it simple so as tosetup dev local environment in any developer machine.
